A fight between husband and wife Mr. Christopher and Mrs.Thorpe started on Saturday evening, during a bonfire party. Their son who witnessed the dispute, turned violent and fatally shot his father in a desperate attempt to save his mother’s life.



According to reporters, the couple went inside of a mobile home and an argument ensued. “He was beating her, [he] kept punching her,” said Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Debbie Carter, according to newsmen. “Then they went from the living room to the master bedroom where he kept beating her.”

The couple’s 17-year-old son, Channing Thorpe, ran into the mobile home where he discovered his father strangling his mother, police say. The teen used a handgun to fire several shots at his father to kill him.

The boy’s mother suffered a bullet wound to the thigh, the Tampa Tribune reports. She received treatment at a nearby hospital and was later released.

Hugh Williamson, who lives a few doors down from where the incident took place, was saddened by the violence.

”You hate to wake up and hear things like that much less in your own neighbourhood,” Williamson told newsmen.

Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office are still investigating the matter. Channing Thorpe was left in the custody of his mother. He is not facing charges.

But if i may ask, why must a man continue beating his wife, even after given birth to grown up children, when will he stop, what is it that can not be settled amicably, why must you beat her and expect her son to watch and clap for you
Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

Ajanni, what the hell is it with you and America? You hate everything America and I am an American born of Nigerian mom and dad. Maybe America refused to give you visa and now you hate them (if so, deal with it). I see all your writings about America, you need to check yourself and write about what is happening in Nigeria before writing about other countries, like your people killing the Igbos  (HELLOOO). Next time, I'm going to put you on a blast (if you don't believe me, bring on the noise). Oh, so you know, I love Nigeria more than you because I do not believe in harming my fellow citizens (Americans or Nigerians), on the contrary, you supported all the atrocities that have been committed to the Igbo’s. I'm sure that your folks thought you not to say a damn thing if you have nothing good to say about someone.

I respectfully disagree with you, a man should not beat up a lady regardless of what she did. nobody is forcing anybody to be in a relationship. One can jet out of the relationship at anything. Beating up a lady is a way for a man to control lady and put fears in her(helloooo). Your wife should not be scare of you, rather, she should be your best friend. There are many ways to get ladies up-set without turning them into punching bags. If my dad does shit like that, I will kill his ass too - word
